Not too bad of a ferry trip with cars. Not much seating on ferry. Takes about 30 min to get to Kelly’s. Parking is $10. You can park across the street for $2.

Had good boat ride. The island is nice with a couple of things to do. We rode through one spot on the Northwest side of the island and it was really net at that spot.

Great experience this past weekend as we took our bikes on the ferry from Marblehead to Kelly's Island. From the ticket agent, dock attendants, and boat crew; all were professional and worked as a fine tune oiled machine.

We took our car on the Ferry to Kelley's island - we hardly had to wait at all - the price for 2 seniors and 1 car was $65. It was well worth it. You can't rent a 'golf cart' to go around the island...More

This is the main ferry service to Kelly's Island. Very fun ride especially for young children. Transports walkers, bicycles, cars, even campers and motor homes.

Very efficient operation. And they're reasonable. You can take your car and or camper, or just walk on and rent a golf cart to tour the Island.
